    Maine does not honor the MA license.

    Mass license

    You need a license to carry a loaded firearm in a vehicle...

    Maine Law

    Loaded firearms in motor vehicles: It is unlawful to have a loaded firearm or crossbow in or on a motor vehicle (including trailer, ATV, aircraft, snowmobile, or railway car). A loaded clip may be carried in a motor vehicle, but it must not be inserted in a firearm. Persons who hold a Maine concealed firearms permit may carry a loaded pistol or revolver in a motor vehicle.

    Firearms may be transported in a motor vehicle without a concealed firearms permit provided they are (1) unloaded and in plain view, or (2) are unloaded and placed in a remote secure area (such as a locked trunk) away from the control of the occupants of the motor vehicle. For purposes of this law, a muzzle-loading firearm is considered to be loaded only if charged with powder, lead and a primed ignition device or mechanism. This provision also applies to crossbows.

    Carrying open while in a vehicle is considered concealed and need a ME permit. You don't need a ME or outside state permit to carry open while outside of a vehicle, As long as you abid by the local and state laws you should be fine. Stay out of Post Offices, Schools, Colleges, Court Houses, other State, Local, Federal Buildings, Oh! and the Acadia National Park and The Appalachian Trail because the state says its safe out in the woods while you are alone... You may get some hassle in Sanford, ME and Portland, ME by the Police Departments if you intend on carrying open within that town and city...
